How to Customize Your New Garage Door

Step One: Choose Your Material

Choosing the best material is the first step in designing your new garage door. Your garage door material will determine your maintenance routine, customization options, and the longevity of your door. There are five primary garage door materials to choose from:

We can help you select the best material for your home based on its needs. For example, consider steel if you want a low-maintenance, long-lasting garage door. Or, if you want a new garage door that is highly customizable to your style and built from scratch for your home, choose wood. 

Step Two: Choose Your Paneling

Once you’ve chosen your garage door material, it’s time to decide on paneling. Your garage door paneling decides your style and vice versa. For example, carriage house garage doors typically have recessed panels, while modern garage doors have flush or full-view panels. The range of garage door panel options includes:

  • Raised Panel
  • Recessed Panel
  • Flush Panel
  • Full-View
  • Long Panel
  • Short Panel
  • Bead Board Panel
  • Carriage House

Step Three: Choose Your Finish

Once we have decided on the framework of your new garage door, we move on to choosing the finish. In many ways, your garage door material determines your finish. If you have a wood garage door, you can choose between wood stains or painted finishes to achieve your desired look. Or, if you have a steel or aluminum garage door, we’ll guide you through the virtually endless paint options or a faux wood finish. We can even color-match your garage door to your front door or window dressings to ensure it complements your home perfectly.

Step Four: Choose Your Additions

Next, you can choose any decorative additions, including windows and hardware, you’d like on your custom garage door. 

Windows are popular for many homeowners because they add visual interest to the garage door exterior while letting natural light into the garage interior. Garage door windows are highly customizable and come in many glass finishes and panels to complement your home’s style. 

For decorative hardware, we have faux handles, hinges, and knobs that enhance the look of carriage house garage doors to create an elegant, timeless finish. 

Step Five: Choose Your Interior

Once you’ve finished designing the exterior of your custom garage door, it’s time to move inside the garage. You want your new garage to run smoothly, safely, and quietly, which is why we offer a wide range of industry-leading options for garage door openers and parts like springs, rollers, cables, and more.

For garage door openers, we recommend smart options with Wi-Fi connectivity, advanced safety features, and automatic locks. These allow you to monitor and control your garage door from anywhere, giving you peace of mind that your home is always secure. If you want a quiet operation, explore options for belt drive and wall-mount garage door openers with smooth, near-silent operation. 

For garage door parts like springs, rollers, and cables, install high-cycle varieties rated for 15,000 cycles of opening and closing. This will ensure your new garage door lasts a long time without headaches.
